Just another example of why school uniforms are a good idea. I went to a public school with no uniforms and it was an all out fashion show. The rich kids never wore the same outift twice, the rest of us wore our jeans and concert t-shirts, and no one gave a damn about what was being taught.
Forget this "express yourself through what you wear" BS. And this crap about student first amendment rights is a myth too. I don't remember anyone going to court for me because i got detention for expressing my unfavorable opinion of certain teachers.
I like these schools that do fairly modern uniforms/dress codes. Ya know, jeans and a blue shirt or something. Hell, it doesn't matter so long as everyone has to wear the same thing, it's cheap, clean, and doesn't look like a british boarding school uniform. I think I saw some school having success with Hawaiian shirts even!
